Senate Gives Final Approval to Colorado Public Healthcare Option; Bill Heads to House

Posted: May 27, 2021

DENVER (KDVR) — A bill that would give Colorado a state health plan that’s available in every county — one of the most major bills this legislative session — just got a final yes vote in the Senate.

While the measure awaits its final House vote, some who are directly impacted by the bill are breathing a sigh of relief about some last-minute changes.

In an industry already pushed to the brink by COVID-19, psychologists were worried the state’s standardized health plan — which would force insurance companies to reduce their premiums over the next two years — would have unintended consequences for people providing care.

Important Survey: Health Care Worker Retention and Resilience Post COVID-19

Posted: May 11, 2021

Hello Healthcare Professionals,

We’re sending you this email and survey link because you probably helped in some way with Colorado’s response to COVID-19. We are trying to learn about how you and your co-workers were impacted by your work during the pandemic. We hope to hear from anyone who supported or participated in the response about what changes need to happen and what services are needed to recover. 

This survey asks questions you probably haven’t been asked before. We ask about your experience trying to do what needed to be done during COVID-19, in your organization, with your peer groups, and in your community. We also ask what is working, what might work, what is not working, and why. The survey only takes 15 minutes for most people and you may choose to remain anonymous. 

We are independent consultants working on behalf of a Colorado Healthcare Coalition and the Department of Public Health and Environment. We will collect the data and help make recommendations about which services and programs organizations should invest in. However, part of our job is to ensure that no employer or regulatory agency (including the sponsor organizations) will ever know which individuals took the survey or what their responses were. 

For more information please go to: https://ncrhcc.org/healthcare-worker-and-responder-covid-impact-and-recovery-survey/

Colorado Prescriptive Authority - Learn from the Pioneers
Friday, June 25, 2021
12:00PM - 1:00PM MST

CPA plans to pursue legislation to grant prescriptive authority (RxP) to licensed psychologists with advanced degrees and training in prescribing psychotropic medications to increase access to appropriate mental health treatment for Coloradans. As part of the strategic planning, CPA is planning to provide a series of webinars targeting the education about the historical background of RxP and the future direction for this needed effort. In this CE credit webinar, we have two prescribing psychologists from New Mexico, which is the first state in the nation to grant RxP to psychologists. We are excited to hear from the experts on their experience with the legislative process in New Mexico and how we can incorporate their success into our needs in Colorado.
